Air Force Nurse Officer 2013 Questions
- 0Jun 27, '13 by futureafnurse2013I will graduate with a BSN in 2015. After I take and pass my Nclex I plan on starting the process to join the AF. I probably will get a civilian job while going through the process. Does the board select nurses that are fresh out of college with little to no experience? Also does the military cover cost for travel to MEPS and COT? btw i am NOT ROTC.

All branches have extremely competitive application processes for new grads. ROTC is the easiest way to get in right now, and even that is very difficult. Chances are you will need to get experience on the civilian side before they'll consider your application.

I will also be graduating with a BSN in 2015! I am trying to apply to the Nurse Transition Program mentioned in a previous post. My recruiter told me to contact him when I am within a year of graduating. This program takes new grads with less than a year experience (I believe that's the magic number).
